Taz Sherman, Jalen Bridges Partner With Astorg Auto



Morgantown area drivers, clear the roads as West Virginia men’s basketball players Taz Sherman and Jalen Bridges partnered up with Astorg Auto, on Thursday.

Sherman and Bridges both posted their partnerships with their new cars on their social medias. Astorg Auto is located in Parkersburg, W.Va.

Jay Kuntz, the assistant to head coach Bob Huggins, helped out Sherman and Bridges acquire this NIL deal. Kuntz has been with the program for the past 13 years and served as a team manager from 2008-12.

Both Sherman and Bridges earn their NIL deals after starting off to a great start to the season, at an 8-1 record. Sherman has leaped up to T-10 in all NCAA D-I scoring, up to 21.2 points per game. The fifth-year senior guard is shooting 44 percent from the field, and 33 percent from three. Bridges has taken another role this season, after West Virginia lost multiple starters over the off-season. Through nine games, Bridges is averaging 7.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.0 block. Bridges is shooting 37 percent from three-point range, taking an average three shots.
